I agree with you and I think these are the reasons why:

1. Peak hp cars are usually drag cars which Porsche's in general are not. Drag racing a motor is way easier than WOT for several seconds to minutes at a time sustaining high RPM's.
2. Blowing up a Civic motor is peanuts in money compared to a 911 hindering all the R&D that is needed to make huge 911 hp/tq.
3. The longevity of the triple-K is hard to beat but at the expense of a lot of hp. The "other" turbos just don't hang on in the long haul like the triple-K.
